Bhopal Gas Tragedy: 30 Years Of Suffering, No Justice

The Union Carbide plant, which took the lives of thousands, still stands there in all its rustic “glory”, abandoned, untouched but still echoing the horror it spread in the city. The soil and groundwater around the factory has been deemed contaminated. There are still potentially harmful chemicals lying around the premises but the government doesn’t seem to care now. After all, it’s been years, it’s old and forgotten now.

Reuse And Recycle

India produces about 3, 80,000 tones of e-waste per annum, which includes only the waste generated from television sets, mobile phones and computers; a major chunk of these come from organisations. E-waste produced in India includes over 100,000 tones from refrigerators, 275,000 tones from TVs, 56,300 tones from personal computers, 4,700 tones from printers and 1,700 tones from mobile phones. The unorganized recycling sector which fails to practice eco-friendly e-waste recycling methods release large amount of toxic chemicals. The current practices of e-waste management in India suffer from a number of drawbacks like the unhealthy conditions of informal recycling, inadequate legislation, poor awareness and negligence on part of the corporate to address the critical issues. The consequences have been deadly.

Your Safety Lies In Your Hands

Global Warming: A Looming Danger

We live in a world where things are accepted, looked into, discussed, strategized, only after they become a large problem. None of us are interested to either think or talk about the latent problem which is soon turning into a patent one—our dying environment. It is a gift that we received from our creator but alas we have repeatedly (ab)used it and now its dying a silent death.

Cry of the Starks

Today, we are at a stage where we face the winter of civilization. I’m not being a Stark here, because Winter is not Coming. It is here. With every passing decade, we have come up with ways to kill ourselves more efficiently and in larger numbers. With every passing century, we have established effective methods of destruction, and annihilation.
